Miami Heat

MIAMI (CBSMiami) — LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis are among those expected to play for Miami on Sunday when the reigning NBA champion Heat make their preseason debut against the Atlanta Hawks.

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says Mario Chalmers and Joel Anthony will be held out of the game. Dwyane Wade will be listed as “day-to-day” for the entire preseason while he works his way back from offseason knee surgery.

James says he is unsure how many minutes he’ll play on Sunday. He expects to miss “one or two” games during the preseason.

After Sunday’s game, the Heat will depart for a week in China and two games against the Los Angeles Clippers. Spoelstra said everyone on the training camp roster is going to be on the China trip.
